Detailed Product Description

London, 1934, 1st edition. 390 pp, 59 plates, 3 folding maps. Royal 8vo. Black cloth hardcover with some edge wear and bumped corners and chipped, but scarce, dust jacket. Near Fine overall.

A large British expedition including Eric Shipton nearly climbed Everest this time. Wager, Wyn Harris and Smythe reached 8570 meters. An ice axe belonging to either Mallory or Irvine was found below the 'first step'. 

The official account of the fourth expedition to Everest, led by Hugh Ruttledge with a team that included Frank Smythe, Eric Shipton, Wyn Harris, and L.R. Wager. Harris and Wager made a summit attempt from the famous Camp VI, reaching 28,200 feet in attempting to determine whether the northeast ridge was climbable. During this climb they came upon the ice-axe of Irvine, lost nine years before on their fateful climb. Harris and Wager found the 'second step' unclimbable and had to revert to a traverse of the face, when time ran out. On the return to the high camp Wager struggled to the crest of the ridge and became the first man to look down the awesome east face of Everest.

This book is large and heavy and we will request extra postage for Priority Mail or International Mail.
